I'm not a Southerner so I've been deprived of some great cooking. I never had Biscuits & Sausage Gravy until after the Signal Corps, I dated a Kentucky gal and we drove down to meet her grandmother once. Had to drive through Hazard KY (that's Dukes of Hazard, Hazard) to get to her place. The next morning the grandmother served up a country breakfast like I never had before. Biscuits & Sausage Gravy has been my downfall ever since. OMG, I love that stuff.
That's the long way of saying, no grits. I've never developed a taste for it (or is it "them").
